When Dhaka needed 44 runs from the last three overs, Dwayne Bravo in the 18th over got the big wicket of Kieron Pollard in his first ball and then Kevon Cooper was run out in the 2nd ball but he came back after Tamim requested him to come back.
While taking run, Cooper collided with the bowler Bravo and as a result of this both of them had to stop at the middle of the crease and the run out happened. Cooper was going back to the pavilion but then Tamim went running to him and requested him to comeback.
Cooper refused to comeback and kept going as he thought he would have been run out anyway. Tamim then also talked with both the Umpires and they gathered together to make a decision. The Comilla Victorians skipper again ran back to Cooper and asked him to comeback.
Few minutes later, the Umpires also told Cooper to come back and then he came back to the field.
Comilla won the match by 12 runs but it could have been a different story if Cooper could deliver in the end. The senior player of the Bangladesh team Tamim made sure that the match ends in a fair away and he again proved that why Cricket is called a Gentleman’s game.
